This juice is a great way to get in your greens with some pineapple sweetness. Pineapple contains bromelain, which aids in digestion, contains anti-inflammatory compounds, and improves blood circulation. Many people purchase bromelain in its pill form from their local supplement store. Why not shake it up a bit and get the benefits straight from the source this time around?
